Hedon’s handbells are believed to have been cast in 1847, but by 2013 were in urgent need of repair with some of the bells cracked and the leather handles deteriorating with age.
With the help of the Heritage Lottery Fund, a grant was obtained to supplement the group’s own fundraising efforts and the bells were sent away to the renowned Whitechapel foundry for a complete overhaul. The restored, pristine bells were returned home in February 2015.
